Ethos & Values

Our Ethos


At Stocksbridge Junior School, we strive for our children to have no limits to their ambitions and to aspire to reach their full potential. We have a traditional ethos that aligns with British values and have designed our curriculum to equip our pupils with cultural capital; the essential knowledge that all pupils need to be educated citizens. This is reflected through our core values of Respect, Endurance, Aspiration, Courage and Honesty… we REACH! We are committed to reviewing and adapting our curriculum to suit the needs of our pupils because, like our pupils, we are all ‘Learning Together’.
